If you are looking for family fun, Ruidoso is the place. Take the go-carts for a spin at Funtrackers, pan for gold at the Flying J Ranch, play a round of Disc Golf, take a Gondola Ride at Ski Apache, or go for a wild ride down the water slide at the Ruidoso Municipal Swimming Pool. Ride the paddle boats at Mescalero Lake at the Inn of the Mountain Gods, or walk one of our many kid-friendly trails.

The village also offers a variety of programs including Wilderness Camps and instruction in archery, golf and gardening. Tennis courts and a sand volleyball court are available for year-round use, and the shredder in your family will love the Skateboard Park. For more information, visit the Ruidoso Parks and Recreation Department.

The Inn of the Mountain Gods also offers its guests a Kids Summer Program on Saturdays from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day.

There's plenty to choose from. Take Your Pick.
